groups, some have close ties to al qaeda and the obama administration didn't want to give the recognition to that particular group. in recent days, they have identified one group and put that down on the terror list and to all the other groups, we put them down as terrorists. we are happy to have the rest of you as long as you keep them out of the picture. some of the other countries that have given the syrian rebels as a larger umbrella. they are not making that distinction. it's a bit of a fine legalistic point. >> we're know the importance of needing to make that. it is linked as an affiliate of al qaeda that the president feels are a representation of the syrian people. >> about a month ago, they got the rebels together and said listen. they had lots of political differences and the united states essentially said you have to get your act together. come to an agreement and a month later that is happening in morocco. the u.s. and the obama administration feels comfortable saying we are with you guys. >> what about the news we just got that the officials have confirmed for the first time
. the obama administration wants to send a clear message that while it supports syria's coalition opposition, to lead syria's democratic transition when the assad regime falls, there is no place for extremism in the country's future. so you see these parallel actions. recognizing the opposition formally but at the same time labeling certain parts of it as, you know, terrorists. so that's an important distinction there. and all eyes are glued to whether chemical weapons will be used or not. >> as you can allude to, they're opening the door for that possibility down the road. but responsibly. >> and we should point out that the full interview with president obama and the first lady will air on friday on "20/20" and "nightline." a cool tradition that barbara gets to sit down in the white house during the holidays and talk to both. certainly no shortage of topics as 2012 winds down. >> but yet the platform is not like she gets extended time for it. "20/20" is still the same amount of time, even though topics are -- >> we'll be back. stay with us. >>> well, this is big. there's a potential breakt
. the obama administration has conspicuously announced a pivot to asia. at the center of this pivot is china, which exists as both an adversary to certain u.s. interests and a fellow traveler sharing mutual goals and vulnerabilities on others. the ongoing challenge will be for the united states to disce discern, sometimes issue by issue, whether china is an adversary or a partner. and this calibration will impact america's relations with the rest of asia and may ultimately determine prospects for war or peace in this world. while visiting indonesia, thailand and the philippines in october, i was reminded of the economic vitality of southeast asia and the fact that the ten countries comprising asean represent now the fourth largest export market of the united states. these countries are center stage to the circumstances with china. we must stand firm with our friends throughout asia and actively pursuit prospects for free trade and open sea lanes and other policies that will strengthen america's economic growth. more broadly, we face the specter of global resource constraints, especially defi
was labeled a terrorist organization by the obama administration today. what can you tell us about them? >> well, scott, nusra is one of a number of shadowy radical islamist groups on the ground. they've been welcomed by many syrians because of their numerous military successes. but the arrival of these types of groups has created a real shift on the ground that we as journalist cans even feel. rebel fighters now asking us "do you work for the c.i.a.? do you work for israel?" a lot more talk about jihad. and often these voices are drowning out the voices of more moderate activists. >> pelley: anything can happen in this volatile part of the world. clarissa, thanks very much. egypt remains divided too. thousands protests tonight both for and against president mohammed morsi. some tried to scale the walls of the presidential palace. morsi is insisting on a national vote this saturday on a new constitution, but opponents say it takes away too many of their rights. a killer is caught on video just before he pulled the trigger. how sand saved some homes from sandy. and a mini-shuttle heads o
a phone call to discuss the latest republican proposal. it comes after the obama administration lowered its request for new tax revenue from $1.6 trillion in over ten years to 1.4 trillion. but before the call boehner was critical of the president. >> right now the american people have to be scratching their heads and wondering when is the president going to get serious. >> the economic uncertainty comes at a time when retailers are hoping for strong holiday sales. the prospect of higher taxes for all americans threatens to sink consumer confidence. >> the specifics of the deal are not as important to us as getting a deal. >> now, in that abc news interview with barbara walters, the president said he thinks the american people will be better off with a done deal. harry reid who's a senate majority leader says he does not expect a deal before christmas. terrell. >> we'll have to see. susan mcginnis in washington. thank you so much. >>> today in morocco, they opened a meeting to discuss the syrian crisis. they're expecting to give them null political recognition during that same interview

think the obama administration, the justice department are trying to figure it out because what happened on election day was in washington and colorado it became the first two states in the country and actually the first two political jurisdictions anywhere in the world to decide to legally regulate marijuana like alcohol, so the feds have to figure this out. >> a little like alcohol. i can buy as many bottles of beer as i want. i can only have an ounce of marijuana in washington and in colorado, right? >> that's right. it's important to say, by the way, that what's going to happen this week in washington state and next month in colorado is just going to make it legal to possess up to an ounce in the privacy of your home. you can't go out smoking in public, all this sort of thing. the part -- >> you have to stay in your home really? >> yes. washington is going to be private. not puffing down the street. this is going to be fairly subtle. the part of the laws that say that washington and colorado state governments should set up a legal regulatory system like with alcohol, those don't ente
people in opposition to the assad regime. >> the obama administration also said today it is formally designated the al nusra rebel group. a major gas line exploded in west virginia. there are reports of multiple fires. a portion of interstate 77 had to be shut down. no word on any injuries or the cause of the blast. >>> anderson, it's a good week if meteors are your thing. this one fell over edmondton alberta in 2008. the comet could produce a meteor shower anytime between now and friday. this is the first year the earth's orbit will pass the comet's debris field. you can get a glimpse of the meteor shower expected to peak on thursday night. that's my gift to you. >> thank you very much. we'll be right back. i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare.

to tax and the liberal obama administration and both charles and i agree that it probably is the most liberal administration ever in the united states. they say, look, we are elected. the folks elected us and we haven't hidden our agenda of elevating all americans to a certain lifestyle, a certain standard of living. in order to do that, we have to take from those who have and give to those below the standard of living that we want. and the folks said yes. that's their argument. >> look, i believe that when you look at the issue of taxation, when you ask as liberals do what's the fair share, the idea is that the government has a claim on your earnings, a moral claim, certain amount, maybe, who knows how much. and then it can dispense with it as it wants. now with a church it ties -- tithes, one tenth claim on your earnings that's what the is in the bible and it spends as it wishes. that's not how a government ought to work. a government ought to work from the other end. what do we need for roads and bridges, for raising an army and in a modern economy, a modern state a safety net for
for insuring previously uninsurable people. so the $63 is set in a regulation by hhs. remember the obama administration kept a lot of regulations back until after the election and they were kind of holding off on that. now we are finding out what it costs. >> we should give a nod to congresswoman michele bachmann because she was complaining about thighs headen numbers forever and everybody was so overwhelmed nobody paid attention. the $25 billion, suppose they don't need $25 billion. let me guess, do we get a refund on it? >> they do not give it back. >> there's a fox news alert. what a surprise! >> and this is a part of other taxes and fees that are going in effect on january 1st. you know, we are talking in washington about the fiscal cliff and raising taxes on the wealthy. taxes on the wealthy are going to go up january 1st regardless what happens with the fiscal cliff. the medicare tax on higher earnersers is going up and a steep tax on investment income. >> going up 3.8% on top of it. so the rich people who have -- who are high earners, their income will probably go up. and then the
these sorts of actions, both in april, only weeks after a deal with the obama administration and now this launch that there really isn't a change in behavior. the leaders have changed but the behavior pretty much remains the same. >> barbara starr, if you could weigh in for a moment. did we expect a lot less from this leader, and if so, or if not, why does this matter so much? >> i think they least hoped he wouldn't go down this road of another missile launch in the attempt to launch from that missile something in to space, a satellite, which is what the pentagon is saying did happen tonight. why does it matter so much? asia is the economic power house already now and in the future. you have china militarizing in that region, north korea and so much commerce, money, and trade that everyone depends on now in asia. to have the militarization of the region by two such uncertain countries with uncertain tensions it is a chilling affect on the world economy. first the u.s., the national security concern about what north korea mooib might do. the deeper, broader, long-term concern about ec
and said he full ly sports same-sex marriage. the obama administration has refused to defend the defense of marriage act. john boehner and eric cantor are still doing it, but the administration is not. the department of justice is not. they said they don't believe in the defense of marriage act any more and they wereare not going to defend it and they hope congress over turns it. george will said here is one of the reasons why politically it has changed. >> they can say it's now safe to look at this because there is something like an emerging consensus. quite literally, the opposition to day garianingmarriage is dying. it's old people. >> it's old people. they are dying off. >> that's an accurate way to put it. >> bill: you talk to young people today. they don't have a problem with it at all. no. you know. i mean a lot of older people too, and a lot of -- but -- and a lot of republicans and democrats. you know why? it's your brother. it's your sister. it's your cousin. it's your aunt. i mean these are family members we are talking about. they are not ma
and the sanctions that the obama administration has already put out there on north rolina. it calls into question how effective they have been. a u.s. official said they had planned to go to the united nations, which met today, to try to get strong wording on condemning this launch. even the threat of additional sanctions on north korea, it really remains to be seen, you know, how much more you could sanction the country, which is already very isolated, especially if you don't have the fullba backing of a country lik china or russia. >> chris, thank you. appreciate it. >>> we learned today there's an american citizen detained in north korea for more than a month now. he's identified as tour operator kenneth bay. south korean papers say bay was detained after crossing into the country with a small group of tourists. one of the tourists reportedly had sensitive information on a computer hard drive, so a u.s. official tells cnn they do not believe that bay is being mistreated by the north koreans. still a lot of questions on that story. >>> sir richard branson, he doesn't sit on ideas. are you still
program. i want to thank the members of this committee, the congress, and the obama administration for supporting a help the inner city passenger rail system and for supporting improved service with words and money. we are grateful for the investments from the american recovery and investment act which have provided more than $1.4 billion for illinois high- speed rail. these current investments in illinois high-speed passenger rail systems are already supporting thousands of jobs with much more on the way. we cannot do it without federal help. we need continued federal funding for high-speed rail to finish the job restarted and keep our promises to travelers and taxpayers. we ask that congress appropriate additional funds for state making these investments, including illinois in the midwest. neither illinois or the midwest would be the transportation hub of the nation that it is today and the state's diverse economic base would not exist as we know it. illinois was made the center of national rail development and today, it hosts a 7,300 mile rail network that serves as a keystone i
. i'm going to give the obama administration the benefit of the doubt that they are doing something behind the scenes to get him out. the fact that pakistan was harboring usama bin laden when they are suppose to be our partner in the war on terror tells you the tenuous relationship we have with them. i think that we do want to try and help him, the question is what can we do and do we want to cut off aid in a country where we need their approval to be able to have the drones there. megyn: we have nukes. if we cut the nukes, where does the aid go. there are all sort of reasons not to do it. but there are also concerns that we care about this doctor and we care about the. >>er would-be assistants there are to us in the world that would step us catch similar terrorists and they see the way this guy wound. what's their incentive. >> also in afghanistan, mali, nigeria. we want to send a signal that if you are going to help the united states we'll stand with you. he got a 33-year jail sentence. the pakistanis charged him with treason and they convicted him on that basis. pakistan is osten
that will reverse the irresponsible cuts proposed by the obama administration and will ensure the service has what it needs to successful conduct its missions. the legislation includes critical provisions that will have the coast guard and its service members greater parity with the counterparts in the department of defense, something we've worked very hard to achieve. h.r. 2838 has reforms and improvements to the coast guard's acquisition programs and activities. the bill encourages job growth in the maritime sector by cutting e.p.a., t.s.a. and coast guard regulatory burdens on small businesses. finally, the bill enhances the security of u.s. vessels and cruise transiting high-risk waters, re-authorizes the national security aspects of the maritime administration for fiscal year 2013, and makes several important improvements to noaa's marine debris program, as noted by mr. larsen. h.r. 2838 was put together in cooperation with the minority and with our counterparts in the senate. i'd like to thank mr. mica, chairman of the full committee, i'd like to thank mr. rahall, the ranking member of the f

for. that will cost every single individual $63 a year. now the obama administration says that the fee will only be temporary. that it will phase out in 2017 because of all savings will be enjoyed by the health care plan overall. unless of course congress decides to extend it which they usually do, right? matt mccall joins me, president of the penn financial group. 63 bucks a head. that is not pocket change. >> no it's not. a lot of people say, what is $63. i spend that on dinner or a christmas present. what they don't realize multiply that by everybody out there that becomes a very, very large number. martha: right. >> as you mentioned a moment ago everybody has to pay for something. this will get passed down to employers which then will most likely pass it down to employees. most employers are trying to cut margins as much as possible to try to make them. when it comes to end of the day, you know what, this is part of obamacare. nothing i can do about it. it will be passed on to you. that will probably hurt wages of you and i. $63 will probably not change anybody's life. but when tha

about the location of osama bin laden. >> reporter: the controversy? the obama administration has faced accusations it gave undeserved access to the filmmakers. in real life, everyone involved in the hunt for bin laden remains sworn to secrecy. but the filmmakers say they got firsthand accounts. they just won't say exactly how that happened. >> i think as a reporter you would understand we take prot t protecting our sources and sort of the exact methodology of our sourcing pretty seriously, just in the same way if i asked you how did you source that story. >> katherine, when you hear mark talk this way, are you a journalist or a filmmakerer? >> that's a good question. well, i certainly tried to be as faithful to the research as possible and make a good movie and make a film that was timely. >> reporter: but how much access they got is the issue. >> obviously things went wrong here. >> reporter: congressman peter king, chairman of the house homeland security committee first called for an investigation at both the cia and the pentagon. >> there was an event where operatives were involved
is now 7.7% falls to 6.5%. that could take some time, though, even though the obama administration is hoping the recovery will speed up. let's bring in our kmeef white house correspondent jessica yellin. what is the white house saying about today's dramatic, very important decision by the federal reserve? >> reporter: wolf, as usual, they are saying nothing. they don't want to comment on fed policy from the white house podium because they never want to say anything that might rock the markets. but i can tell you that democrats generally view these moves as a positive sign something that will create predictability for business so that's something that pleases them. also, behind closed doors here at the white house, wolf, they have been meeting with business leaders today. the president's top advisers and chiefly his economic team has been meeting with ceos and wall street hon chos trying to continue their charm offensive to help some of the nation's top business executives sell their deal on the fiscal cliff and this week the white house had a major victory on that front. the busine

on this story as they become available to us. >>> also tonight, president obama says his administration will formally recognize the syrian opposition forces fighting with syrian president bashir al assad. here's what the president told barbara walters. >> we made a decision that the syrian opposition coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative of the syrian people in opposition to the assad regime. >> this, by the way, comes nearly a month oafter britain ad france recognized the coalition. the move is important to the coalition. it is looking to get rid of this man, al assad, but it doesn't mean washington will be giving them weapons any time soon. that is a huge sticking point. defense secretary leon panetta is saying there is no new intelligence indicating assad's regime is moving any closer to using the chemical weapons that had so many people on edge just earlier this week. >>> tonight, we are also learning that an american has been held in north korea for more than a month no
the administration formally recognized the syrian opposition. >> in fact, president obama did so himself tonight on abc "world news tonight." we also understand this comes a day after the state department declared one of the opposition factions a front group for al qaeda in iraq. this morning the treasury department follows suit, slapping sanctions on credited the group part of the opposition for role in helping take a large military base near aleppo from the assad regime. >> i think we have in mind now sort of shaping the post assad environment and looking at libya and some of the resurgents of al find you have have this there he especially what happened in benghazi. >> politically risky move, shepard. sheriffs clinton cancelled trip to syria meeting in morocco earlier today. >> shepard: developments coming fast now. there is word of possible progress in the fiscal cliff standoff. officials say president obama and the house speaker john boehner talked by phone tonight after each put new offers on the table. we are live in d.c. with the late breaking details on that. plus, we're getting more new
